The Rocky Horror Picture Show was released 40 years ago today. I didn’t see the show until about 5 years later at a midnight showing at the local XXX theatre. Suddenly I found myself in a room full of people like me. The first time in my life that acceptance, love, fun and laughter was shared by all…unconditionally.
Needless to say, I was hooked. Each week I would return for many showings to come. By the time I graduated high school I probably had at least 100 showings under my belt. I admit that the film had an impact on me, one that helped shape who I have become.
